Hello, a big Thank You and Some blog housekeeping

Hi everyone, Cathy here, from Cathy's Sewing Room, I am the new Swap Co-ordinator for the group.

An email has been sent to all members of the Christmas Quilting Block Swap Australia Group to let you know of a few changes.

Crafty Pug has decided to step down as Swap Mummy of the group and SueB, the founder of the group, has asked me to step in. Some of you may already know me as I was an active member of the Christmas Swap group for quite some time.

First up, I must thank the lovely Crafty Pug for being such a great Swap Mum since the group was formed, and also SueB, our Group Founder, for asking me to step in. I have some big shoes to fill, and I hope I do a good job ;-)

Next .....

Nothing will change in the way we swap with each other, or the way the group is run, but one thing has changed ............ the group blog now has a new email address.

You will receive your partner allocations and any other communications from this address from now on.

If you are currently noted as being 'on leave' - your name has been removed from our blog list (see sidebar) please feel free to let me know if you would like to continue being 'on leave' or if you would like to rejoin and become an active member again, or if you would like to leave permanently. I realise that life just 'gets in the way' sometimes, and you may need to take a step back. Just remember, you are always welcome to come back at any time ;-)

I really hope this transition period goes smoothly, but please bear with me, if I do make the occasional error ;-)

Two blocks for Vicki

Vicki is my March partner and she requested any block in traditional colours, so I made her a Christmas tree.

It was quite late at night when I made this and in the light of day the next day I realised that it was a bit wonky so I have made a second block for Vicki.

My second block for Vicki is this Christmas star - both blocks will be in the mail to Vicki this week.

Beautiful block from Pat - has it arrived?

Hi everyone ;-)

Pat has asked me to post this photo for her.

such a gorgeous block!

Unfortunately, Pat can't remember which month it was for (Nov-Dec-Jan) and she hasn't heard if it has arrived at its intended destination ;-(

I would hate to think this beautiful block has been lost in the post ;-(
If you have received it, please let us know ;-)
